Elephant in the Room
Entry Deadline: March 25, 2023

Exhibit of accepted artworks 
April 7 - June 4, 2023

As one of the most iconic and beloved animals on the planet, elephants are a source of inspiration and wonder for artists of all mediums.

We welcome submissions from Colorado artists working in any medium, from sculpture, painting,  photography, printmaking, installations and group efforts. We encourage artists to think creatively and explore the many facets of the elephant, from their remarkable size and strength to their gentle intelligence and social bonds.

This is a great opportunity for artists to showcase their work to a wider audience and contribute to an important conversation about the conservation and protection of elephants. We encourage all artists to consider submitting their artwork for this exciting exhibit. “Elephant In The Room”
